for your family. trace: major garrett has the news for us from the white house. there seem to be some backpedaling going on here. >> when the white house began shifting its message from health care reform to health insurance reform, it appears this government-run component became a casualty. the president on saturday said, essentially, this was not mandatory in any final product. on sunday, kathleen sebelius, like every other cabinet member, is given points to talk about over the weekend, and she said the same thing. a public option is not an essential element of reform. the white house is saying nothing has changed and it remains a priority but legislatively, it is losing steam in the polls. there does not appear to be the votes in the senate or in the senate finance committee, which need to act by next september. interestingly enough today, howard dean said that there was no reason to go through the effort and expense of health care reform if you do not have a public option. his projection was that if this stalls, there will be in the public of rising to put it back in the package s

for us, and she joins us now with the latest. >> thanks a lot, pat and jim. yeah, for the last 2 1/2 months, the atlantic season has been awfully, awfully quiet. now we've got three. hurricane bill, of course, the first hurricane for 2009. could become a major hurricane by the end of the week. we'll keep our eyes on it. it's way out in the atlantic in the open waters and it is expected to intensify. not until saturday. bill might move closer to bermuda. then you've bought tropical depression anna. it's in the caribbean there. expected to make its move just south of hispaniola in cuba. and then finally we've got claudette. it made landfall this morning in the gulf of mexico, around ft. walton beach florida with gusty winds and rain. there you can see on the radar where most of the heaviest rains -- it's rather disjointed and disorganized now. the heaviest rains sitting off the coast. spots like alabama and western georgia getting lots of rain. meanwhile, kristen dahlgren has more. >> reporter: as claudette came ashore on the florida panhandle overnight, the storm left a wet wake-up
